Yes dbt Eric will be sadly missed. My fiance and myself got to meet and chat with Eric last year at the Pontiac Supernationals in Columbus, he was very friendly and more than happy to pose for pictures with my fiance. To Eric's family, John Force Racing, and all of Eric's NHRA fans our deepest sympathy, God bless you all.... GOD'S SPEED ERIC!!

I have no interest in NHRA. (I like my races to last longer than an orgasm.) However, as a racing fan, I'm always sad when ANY racer dies, whether I'm a fan of where they raced or not.:(

Never got a chance to meet Eric personally, but I was very sad to hear about the accident and now his death. I've been to 2 or 3 NHRA events and they put on a great show, very fan friendly and always accessible, especially all the folks at JFR. Force thought of Eric as a son, that's tells you everything you need to know about him. He was a great guy. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Im a huge NHRA fan and to hear someone from any team dies is horrible. I love John Force Racing and it is tough to know that it happened to such a great team!!!!
